Wool work sampler by Agnes Grange who was born and lived at East Riddlesdon Hall. Design of children, flowers, animals and birds within a floral patterned border; in heavy painted frame. Dated 1841.
Agnes Grange (1828-1895) was the youngest daughter of Areton and Anne Grange (nee Slingsby) who were tenants at East Riddlesden Hall from the 1810s until Areton's death in 1840. The Slingsbys were cattle breeders from Carlton-in-Craven who rented pasture land on the East Riddlesden estate. After Areton's death, Anne and her children went to live with her brothers back in Carlton-in-Craven. Agnes later married a Liverpool butcher and hide dealer called Thomas Webster.
Marks and inscriptions
Inscription in centre reads:- Jesus permit thy gracious Name to stand. As the first effort of an infants hand. And while my fingers o'er this canvas move. Engage my tender heart to seek thy love. By thy good precepts be my conduct taught. Correct my will and regulate my thaught. In death support me and in judgment save. Give peace on earth and bliss beyond the grave. 1841 Agnes Grange's Work XXX
